Harvard Medical School is closing their Primate Center, the New England Regional Primate Research Center (NERPRC), and plans to relocate the primates to other research facilities. These animals have suffered enough at human hands, and deserve the opportunity to live in a place where their needs will be the first and only priority. Please contact the President of Harvard University and the Dean of Harvard's Medical School to request that as the New England Primate Center closes, all of the primates be placed at nonprofit, federally authorized sanctuaries and refuges.
